      Riley's Retreat is awesome!

      The property is beautiful, a great location, Tom was a kind and gracious host, and fun to talk to. Have you ever looked at a place on line and thought "wow this is beautiful it can't possibly be that great", and you get there and your suspicions were right? Well this isn't that place, Riley's Retreat completely lives up to the hype with easy access to the beach, beautiful water views and is well stocked for outdoor activities. One piece of info, its not really well set up for someone in a wheel chair or with mobility issues, but it never claimed to be. We enjoyed our time immensely, I would come back here in a heart beat.

      5/5 Excellent

        Really enjoyed it!

        Great spot at Riley’s Retreat. Thank you for the great hospitality Tom. We only had 4 days but we filled them with the beach and the local restaurants and bars. Hope we can come back sometime!

        5/5 Excellent

          Great Place

          This is a really nice rental (we had both the two-bedroom and adjoining 1-bedroom). Everything is clean, and Tom has clearly made a great effort to make things easy and fun for guests. When the description mentioned an outdoor grill and shed with water toys, I pictured the sort of cheap stuff that is typical of rentals, but man was I wrong. This outdoor setup is the real deal! Between the upscale covered grilling/eating area, pond, hammock, dock, and enough fishing gear that my friends and I had our lines in the water in minutes and about 8 different species a couple hours later, we wanted to spend the whole trip in the back yard! While on the dock we also saw maybe a dozen dolphins (very close!), some rays, and lots of different birds - I got the sense that it's that neat all the time.

          5/5 Excellent


            We very much enjoyed our stay @ Riley's Retreat. It was immaculate, and had all the amenities ready and waiting. That was very much appreciated. It was very comfortable and spacious. Tom is a very nice and accommodating person. I wish we could have spent more time sitting out by the dock at the back of the property and maybe doing a little fishing. It was beautiful out back and Tom had fishing poles and equipment for our use, but we were down in Treasure Island for our daughter's wedding and did not have much "spare" time. We did make time to go to the beach once, and we used the boogie/surf boards and beach chairs. There is Publix close by and it was great for all our grocery needs. Thanks again Tom for a wonderful stay!
